Skip to comments.Ted Cruz: Background Check Goal a 'Federal List of Every Gun Owner in America' (News Video at link)

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Fox News' "Hannity" discussing universal background checks:
"Why is all this focus directed at background checks? The reason is because the Department of Justice has said the only way to implement what they wantuniversal background checksis a registry, a federal list of every gun owner in America. And that would be wrong; it'd be unconstitutional."

Any senator who goes along with this is a TRAITOR!!
Yep. It’s just registration by another path.
That's all that needs to be said.
Yes, it definitely is unconstitutional BUT with the SCOTUS we have now, would it be found unconstitutional? That’s the 17 trillion dollar question? Even my husband doesn’t believe they would ever be able or want to confiscate all the guns in this country. I say...my husband is crazy...of course that is exactly what they want to do. The people in this country better wake the HELL up!
No more cops’ “drop guns”?
Once again, Ted Cruz is right on target.
they will use the registration list as an open warrant....
oh so and so was killed with a .22?..they will pull up every .22 owner and investigate them...
it will be a political tool...
a convenient excuse to rid themselves of enemies...
how often do you read that the cops raid someones house and they find an "arsenal"....like that in and of itself is wrong, or criminal..
A gold mine for a criminal.
What we are facing now is a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object - a design to reduce us under absolute despotism. In this situation, we have a clear right and duty to restore constitutional government. I hope the socialists will back down before this turns ugly. I’m not optimistic, but I am hoping - while also following the Boy Scout Motto.
Ted Cruz is the only Senator worthy of his Senate seat. If I’m a nut job and a crazy whacko bird for supporting the Constitution, so be it. I am so sick of liberals. What goes around eventually comes around. And when they finally get what’s coming to them on their individual judgment days, I won’t shed one tear. I will go to my grave knowing I was on the right side and not the side who agrees with slaughtering innocent babies. They cry for the children of Newton and stay silent during the trial of the evil man who stabbed babies in the neck. This is a sick country.
Sadly, Ted Cruz is the ONLY Congresscritter to come even remotely close to being a patriot. I applaud his courage in a sea of traitors.
Gun confiscation will be done nationwide, but NOT by the government. Lists will be sent out to all local Sheriffs and THEY will do the gun confiscations... Quietly, one door at a time. And like the Kermit Gosnell story, the media will not cover it. Americans will have no way of knowing what’s being done to their fellow citizens.. Quietly.. One gun at a time. One thing that WILL happen however, is barricade situations by stubborn Constitutionalists who refuse to relinquish their God-given right.
“””oh so and so was killed with a .22?..they will pull up every .22 owner and investigate them...””””
That would be senseless. All the “registered” names would be from law abiding citizens that abide by the process. 99.999999% of the time, the crime is from an UNLAWFUL gun owner that is already scoffing at current gun restrictions.
I am sure Tyrone and Julio Gangbanger will hurry down to the courthouse to register their mac10s and sawed offs, huh?
Tyrone and Julio Gangbanger will not register their names.
Why can’t liberals get this!!!!!!
Tyrone and Julio Gangbanger don’t follow the law.
Hey Liberals! You can make 1000 new gun laws today and Tyrone and Julio Gangbanger will still rob and shoot someone tomorrow.
I say.... You can make 1000 new gun laws today and Tyrone and Julio Gangbanger will still rob and shoot someone tomorrow.
Again... You can make 1000 new gun laws today and Tyrone and Julio Gangbanger will still rob and shoot someone tomorrow!
Restricting law abiding citizens just makes Tyrone and Julio Gangbanger’s job alot easier.
The Manchin-Toomey “bipartisan compromise” amendment is already so watered down that the MSNBC hosts today were asking prog/lib guests whether they should vote against it in protest because it does not do enough to track/prevent law-abiding citizens getting guns. Barry FAILS again!
Ted Cruz is the only honest and upright man in DC.
Even if it’s blatantly unconstitutional,
if the court says it’s constitutional,
there’s nothing else to say.
